Donald Trump held this secret meeting about a Vice-Presidential bombshell

May 10, 2024

It’s getting down to the nitty gritty for Donald Trump to pick a running mate.

The selection process is farther along than most people realize.

And Donald Trump held this secret meeting about a Vice-Presidential bombshell.

Donald Trump hears from donors about their preferred running mate pick

Big-money donors always like to think they are in charge of a campaign.

In this case, Trump’s top contributors are throwing their weight around in hopes of seeing their preferred pick end up on the ticket with him.

RINO New York Congresswoman Elise Stefanik has one high profile backer.

CNBC reported that former chairman of Marvel Entertainment, Ike Perlmutter, “told Trump he thinks the former President should choose New York Representative Elise Stefanik, according to a person briefed on the conversation.”

Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin’s patrons are also pushing his name on Trump.

“Rupert Murdoch has hinted to several friends who move in Trump’s social circles that he would be happy with a Republican ticket that included Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin, according to sources familiar with the matter,” CNBC also reported.

And Oracle founder Larry Ellison is among the many GOP billionaires pushing establishment South Carolina Senator Tim Scott.

“Billionaire Trump backers in the real estate industry have told the former President’s advisers that they like South Carolina Senator Tim Scott, according to people who have spoken with them. These and other sources for this story were granted anonymity to recount private conversations,” CNBC reported.

And as a sign of who the best pick may be, the donor class is united in their opposition to Senator J.D. Vance (R-OH) due to worries that he supports Trump’s America First agenda.

“This may help to explain why some influential Trump donors are especially wary of Ohio Senator J.D. Vance, according to people close to the Trump campaign. Widely considered a serious contender in the “veep stakes,” Vance is an Ivy League-educated populist who backs higher tariffs and aggressive business regulation,” the CNBC report continued.

Sizing up these contenders

Stefanik voted for amnesty more than a dozen times and supported a bill that would let biological males claim to be girls and use the women’s bathroom.

Scott is one of Mitch McConnell’s trusted loyalists in the Senate and is a loud backer of a blank check to Ukraine.

When Trump was President, Tim Scott constantly caved to the woke mob.

Scott played the race card to sink two of Trump’s conservative judicial nominees by smearing them as bigots.

After the death of George Floyd, Scott was a supporter of a bill that would have put Nancy Pelosi in charge of police standards.

Youngkin is a milquetoast establishment friendly Republican who never does anything to rock the boat with the donor class.

Vance, on the other hand, is a MAGA loyalist who supports closing the border, ending funding to Ukraine, and Trump’s plan to slap tariffs on goods from Communist China in order to stop them from ripping America off.
